Rye has lost Eldridge Court resident George Croughan. The Rye City schools notified parents via email this afternoon. LoHud.com and Patch.com both have reported Croughan took his life early this morning when he jumped off the Tappan Zee bridge. Croughan, age 50, is survived by his wife Judy and their three boys Will, Colin and Mark.
George was a runner and a regular with the other dog walkers at Rye Town Park. George's wife Judy was a long-time contributor to MyRye.com and we bought our Rye home from George and Judy when we moved to Rye in 2002. They were as kind and welcoming as you would want anyone to be when one moves into a new community.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Croughan family.
